9:04pm
teams have been reviewing cam extras we're told there are many. there is that person of interest of course. a saudi national. it's understanding the details he was trying to get into the blast, into the area before all of this happened. was detained, well, it's being questioned now. we'll get details from the scene. no official suspects and so far no, answers. no answers as to why anyone would want to inflekt thi this -- inflict this level of terror they run the marathon on patriot's dmai boston. tonight boston is also a city where people are mourning their dead, coming together with strength skj resolve. here at four minutes past midnight in boston. rick? >> shepherd they pulled back from the scene because it's an active investigation at this hour. the fbi response team is there collecting, documenting and
9:05pm
photographing and sifting through every inch of the area looking for possible clues as to who might have triggered those blasts today. we had a fleet of ambulances behind us that were on stand by and police officers searched vehicles with flashlights in a 12-block radius to make sure there are no other possible bombs ready to go off. ambulances to assist if needed. they were not z they were cleared but the fbi has taken control of the investigation and aadds they do in any act of terrorism and will be on scene for hours throughout the night if not for days ahead. of course as mentioned the blast took place after the race started. after the finishers crossed the line. the winners crossed a couple hours before this explosion went off of. 17,000 of them, 23,000 runners finished so the crowds had thinned somewhat. it's a fortunate thing for
9:06pm
people who might have also been hurt but the injuries were horrific. according to witnesses and emergency room trauma doctors 140 treated in hospitals. more than 100 reported to be in the hospital still, tonight. 15 injured. three killed. possibly 10 or more lost limbs, some victims were very small children. most were just innocent spectators lining the route. lining the race route watching people race. including a woman from seattle there watching her sister run the race. sheer what she told us. >> i was probably just a half block over, all of a sudden everybody is running and screaming. and saying there is a bomb, a bombing. >> an active fluid investigation. according to officials here the city quiet at this hour. the crime scene not quiet. investigators will be there sometime. >> i was wondering.
9:07pm
the mayor asked people to stay home. we saw very little traffic. i see some behind you. i'm wondering if that is from a glance is mostly media and those assisting here? >> yeah. media has been directed mostly to this area. we're seeing cab goes by but not a lot of traffic. very little foot traffic. runners here to talk about their experiences and for the most part it is very quiet sounds like people heeded a warning officials request they not gather outside in large groups and take cover for the night. >> rick leventhal thank you very much. we've been reporting of a person of interest in this case. now, he was important to listen to the words of the authorities this afternoon as they talked about this matter. there are legal issues at work. there are confidentiality and matters surrounding that at work. it's interesting the way
9:08pm
authorities spelled it out. the police commissioner said despite what what has been report there'd is no suspect in any hospital. and there is not. sources tell fox news there is no suspect. but there is a person interest of. there are reasons this saudi national in the united states on a student visa now in a hospital, we're told, and being treated, we're told is a person of tr. when asked after that, other authorities whether there is a person of interest in this case they said we'll not comment on an ongoing investigation. they would not knock that down. our chief intelligence correspond jent live in washington for us early on this tuesday morning. sem manhattanics are important and then again, it's important to remember they may question people. and it's a possible some may have information that is worth having and had -- some may
9:09pm
not. >> this is a lead being run down at this hour, investigators looking into a saudi national approximately 20-21 years after age on a student seriesa. not being described as a suspect at this hour arks cording to review his name doesn't appear on terror watch lists. also the student visa appears legit. investigators working to verify whether this individual was attending classes or as information associated with records. ie any kind of interaction with law enforcement. this source emphasized there are just not resources to checkup on legitimate student visa holders are tending school in this country. two sources told us the name and date of birth was sirk rated for -- circulated to capitol hill. it may wash out along with others. >> my guess is that there may
9:10pm
be a number of search warrants being exsuited -- executed tonight. we know of an apartment in massachusetts being searched. do we know whose that is? whether it's related to this person of interest? >> we're working to confirm reports coming out of boston police and federal agents are searching a complex in refer. reports indicate there are canine units as well as bomb squad fbi and homeland security investigations this is a part of homeland security that would also include immigration and customs enforcement. not clear whether it's related to the boston explosion. fbi special agent in charge emphasized this is an active investigation and fluid. and less than 12 hours from now we're going tofr ntct this is a group that is after september 11th addressed threats and kredzible
9:11pm
of -- credibility of the threats aimed at the united states. they will be breefring members of the house intelligence committee tomorrow morning and we're anticipating members of the senate intelligence community. the speed at this ch these briefings taking place indicates this zbaigs hot, very active and ongoing. >> the analysts and those working in the field over the years often categorize these things based on initial market. so many experts i've spoken to this evening have suggested that this has certain hallmarks none of which are for a large and organized sort of group. it's -- is that what you're hearing as well? >> i think you're referring to two marker that's we're hearing. one is that the timing of the devices the fact there 2004 nearly simultaneous explosions is called a marker or hall
9:12pm
mark of a terrorist attack. first explosion then we believe a second device more powerful device idea people in the crowd would be driven towards a larger devise to maximize casualties then composition of the device we know fbi is on the ground and focused on gathering the residue to tray to identify the type of explosives and type of detonateors we've talked about the signature of the bomb maker. and we had confirmation from head of the homeland security committee today who has been briefed on this investigation that the initial information he is getting is is that there was shrapnel associated with the explosive devices so the devices themselves, timing, the size, it does speak to a terrorist attack but it doesn't necessarily speak to one that is domestic or international in origin
9:13pm
because it's so early in this investigation. >> catherine thank you. >> you're welcome. >> ahead police recordings. first responders rushed to the scene of the attack. we'll hear from a nurse who says he was running in that marathon when the bombs exploded this, is fox news channel's continuing coverage of the attack on the boston marathon. with the spark miles card from capital one, bjorn earns unlimited rewas for his small business take theseags to room 12 please.

9:17pm
16 minutes past midnight now in boston. we've been seeing the dramatic video from the attack. images of chaos in the streets following the explosion but the emergency dispatch recordings from the scene. in other words first responders police and others there protecting or getting ready to help anyone in need at the marathon began calling in on police radios and those recordings give us a sense of what's happening. of the horror and chaos, they describe panic unfolding before their eyes. we'll listen with the understanding in early going the chaotic nature was something of the norm. and after just a matter of a few short minutes there was a man on the radio who boiled it down and said now we have to get rid of -- treat those who are injured and we have to make sure there are no more devices out there. secure the scene and treat the
9:18pm
wounded now here are the recordings. >> i was told at first told we didn't vit. then told we d now, i'm told we don't vit again. let's get to jay heartford he says he was 800 yards from the finish line. he's live with us now. jay good morning and thanks for joining us. so glad you're all right. >> thank you. >> i know you're very close to the end there. and one has been in boston a long time knows of the explosions that happened on st. patrick's day and initially you weren't sure whether there tl this was excitement or chaos. >> correct. and sounded more trance former explosion. very loud and noxious clearly something not planned. and phone shallly dangerous but it didn't seem like anything malicious to begin with. >> and then, 12 seconds later
9:19pm
something snels. >> yes. so we just turned on to 200 people running ne.s to me and behind me just turned onto the final several hundred yards onto the treat z in the first explosion happened and it stunned everybody. i would say about half of us acted as if it were a transformer or something innocent. that other people took closer than others. and as we started to move towards finish line again, second one happened and it was clear people weren't cheering anymore and were screaming and dozens of people running back against us simultaneously, police and emt jumping
9:20pm
barricades and moving towards the chaos. >> there is a woman next to you on her knees? >> yes. people were on the ground a woman next to me screaming. and a couple of us moved to her. i tried to figure out if she was hurt. she was bleeding. and she was on her knees and just blood curdling screams. i tried to help her stand up. just to see if i -- if -- to assess her. she just kept curling back over. i screamed are you hurt physically? are you hurt physically? she shook her head no,. but she stopped screaming and shaking. trying to get her off the road at this point. i said where are we going to
9:21pm
move her? at this point we're surrounded by emfs and firefighters and police were swarming. there were dozens around us. at this point. >> from what i saw those where the heroes of the day. they came forward to help those badly injured. jay heartford on the line with us a nurse at boston hospital. we're also hearing from doctors who treated dozens of victims some as young as two years old. now what we know about the injuries how doctors are handling them in emergency rooms and hospitals aconsiders the city. visit fox news channel.

9:24pm
9:25pm
live coverage continues now 25 minutes past midnight in boston. i mentioned we have recordings not from 911 people calling in to report but from the police and others on the scene some of ep them there for the marathon, some arriving because of the incident. explain plaining what's happening around them, and then, organized the situation in the end just about a minute of audio here. but an interesting synopsis of
9:26pm
the early minutes of the event. >> all units stay off the air make your way over there. >> okay. copy that. >> i only want to hear from the 984. >> i want the road cleared so i can get ambulances out. okay? >> okay. multipeople -- multiple people down here. i don't know what the cause s stand by. >> bomb squad monitoring. >> 901. we need to set up and get people away from it. >> we're going to get victims
9:27pm
out and conduct a sweep to make sure there are no other devices on the street. we'll then get people out of the restaurants and bars. >> there you have it. recordings from dispatch channels. you know interestingly you may have seen them pushing people in qheel chairs you don't see a lot of ambulances in early going the reason is that there are many people crowded into this tight area that with all of the chaos and everyone tearing down barricades to try to get to injured they couldn't get the ambulances in. so they were taking wheelchairs in trying to get to the wounded in any way they could, ripping across the barricades there for crowd control then, all of a sudden impeding rescue efforts. and all the while wondering is that backpack there, or is that box there containing another bomb? is there another one still to come? so keeping everyone inside of
9:28pm
the bars and restaurants who were there thinking that is where they'd be safest clearing streets of the people making sure devices, none of them, the bags would blow up, then clearing people out of the restaurants and bars on a holiday, a day of celebration. red sox played at 11:00 in the morning out of fenway by 2:00 or 3:00. people were there to watch the regular folks who ran the marathon. not the winners. waiting to watch loved ones. little children carrying signs about their father, one of whom did not go home tonight. we're getting a very well, a better idea of the sheer magnitude of the injuries following the bombing. we've heard reports of two explosions blowing through limbs and of the now-confirmed 140 people several are children. the boston globe newspaper reporting that the dead include an 8-year-old boy. boston childrens hospital
9:29pm
report doctors treated a 9-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, a 12-year-old and 2-year-old admitted to the surgical intensive care unit with head injuries. a trauma surgeon at mass general hospital described treating dozens of patients mostly with lower body injuries. many of them slappel wounds several now critical. doctors said there have been semp amputations. -- several amputations. i was listening with great interest in a couple doctors who had been through a lot and were calm as they can be. but explaining to us that there were many more surgeries that had to be done. i was thinking of what that means and they're saying we had to stop the bleeding, take off the parts no longer useful, seal the body up, and wait to see what we have to do later. that is a horrifying series of
9:30pm
circumstances for people not in your field. >> that is what you see in a war zone, iraq, afghanistan. you see a series of operations. you hear from a doctor giving a press conference, his partner worked in the war. they make an assessment. if they have to do an amputation they want to do it right away because there is a big risk of infection. we've seen over 10 amputations but describing if there are shamp nel wounds first you fix the bone then go back in to fix the sharp issue then fix the vascular or arteries in the vain and try to save the leg that can take several days. he said he'd done six operations and going back into n.to do more. >> it's possible that we're going to find out at this point, possible, that they have attacked because of the cameras there. if you want people to remember
9:31pm
your work to have a visual off it if that person wasn't there, you do it in a place you know there will be cameras but what we're also going to learn is that they have such a maizing medical facilities there and in a triage set there, many there were volunteering people who might need help. it was their contribution and they will emerge as hero autos they are the heroes not knowing if there are more bombs they used oxygen and got ambulance in there and to the hospital. 130 injured and only a few died so far. 15 in critical condition according to our brain room. maybe will still survive. >> it's a day long experience.
9:32pm
and maybe a backpack, an explosion happened you drop that. they don'ts have an idea whether there is a bomb in that bag yet there they were. one man talking of taking a belt off from a place where a leg used to be. another talking of seeing a body part fly by all of them stopping to render aid not knowing whether there were more than two bombs. and they heard the first and wondered and second, wondered no more. there, they sat. and a lot of people rose to the occasion today and a lot of peoples lives were saved because medical personnel were on the ground able to get them to some of the world's finest hospitals. the boston marathon might
9:33pm
leave pictures but because it's in this place many may have lived despite odds. white house ramped up security in the wake of the attack just about everybody did. ahead we'll get a report from washington, d.c. and the president's words of reassurance to the nation. we've just passed 12:30 in the morning in boston. the investigation is just beginning.
